The Winnipeg Jets are back for the second game of their three-game road trip tonight as they head to the American Airlines Center and take on the Dallas Stars. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. central time (8:30 p.m. eastern).

Winnipeg started this road trip on a sour note on Friday night in St. Paul. The Jets suffered their biggest loss of the season as they lost 6-1 to the Minnesota Wild.

On the other hand, tonight is game four of a four-game homestand for the Stars and they have played extremely well during this homestand.

Last time out, on Wednesday night, the Stars beat the Blackhawks 6-4 to improve their record this homestand to 2-0-1 with their only loss coming in a shootout to the Colorado Avalanche.

This is an important game in the Central Division as the Winnipeg Jets take on the Division leading, Dallas Stars

The Jets enter tonight’s game sitting in a tie for second place in the division with the Avalanche as both teams have 23 points in 18 games.

The first placed Stars have 27 points from 20 games. Therefore, this game can provide a four-point swing for the Jets. A regulation win tonight for Rick Bowness’ men, will then put them two points behind the Stars with two games in hand.

Winnipeg and Dallas have met twice before this season with the home team winning both of these matchups. In the second game of the season, in Dallas, the Stars skated to a 4-1 win, but then on November 8, the Jets played an outstanding game as they destroyed the Stars 5-1 at the Canada Life Centre.
